THE KISSING BOOTH 2 (2020): The Things I liked…

Director Vince Marcello’s sequel to hit teen movie The Kissing Booth (2018) focuses on Joey King)’s character Elle’s attempts to juggle a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend Noah (Jacob Elordi), while she’s also applying for college. Then there’s a new friendship with a handsome classmate that could really complicate things.

Considering how I felt about the first movie, I wasn’t sure what to expect with The Kissing Booth 2. Luckily, to my very pleasant surprise, I had a good time. Even though it’s still not perfect, I found this sequel to be funnier and certainly better written than the first movie. I found myself especially glad that I didn’t encounter any stand out bad acting moments.

I like how the story played out, including the moments that surprised me, big or small. As a long appreciator of good teen movies, this one I’ll remember fondly; thanks to the overall execution and the fact that it didn’t force me to question any of Marcello’s decisions. I was simply too busy enjoying the results.

Lastly, I’ve always appreciated the way good teen movies can transport us back to our teenage years (not that mine are extremely far behind me, mind you). As the characters grow up before our eyes, making mistake after mistake, I often wonder whether I was equally clueless at their age. Or was I close to being as wise as I feel I am today? I know what I want to believe. I also know what’s highly likely.

Give The Kissing Booth 2 a chance if you’re curious, and for all the reasons above.

Written / directed by Melissa Miller Costanzo, All These Small Moments tells the story of  a teenage boy’tumultuous adolescence and how it’s further complicated after he becomes infatuated with a woman he sees on the bus.

Molly Ringwald, Jemima Kirke, Harley Quinn Smith and Brendan Meyer are among the key cast.

It’s the ever intriguing dynamics of the dysfunctional family and the consequences for the children caught in the middle. This is the main reason for my interest in this movie.
